Window replacement for listed cottage in Downton

Project News: Windows Replacement for Grade Two Listed Cottage

We are thrilled to share an exciting project we recently completed in Downton, where we had the privilege of working with a client who owns a charming Grade Two listed thatched cottage. At our heritage joinery company, we specialise in crafting bespoke timber windows and doors, ensuring that each piece reflects the unique character of the building.

The challenge we faced was to upgrade the windows of this historic property to meet modern standards of energy efficiency and comfort while respecting its heritage significance. With our client’s vision in mind, we embarked on a journey that combined traditional craftsmanship with innovative solutions.

Navigating the intricate process of gaining planning permission for alterations to a listed building can be daunting. However, armed with meticulous CAD drawings and a comprehensive heritage statement, we crafted a compelling application that outlined our proposal with clarity and reverence for the building’s heritage.

We are delighted to report that our efforts were successful, as the local council recognised the importance of preserving our architectural heritage while embracing sustainable living. The approval granted us the opportunity to incorporate slimline double-glazed units into the cottage’s windows, seamlessly blending modern comfort with traditional aesthetics.

This collaborative effort between our team, the client, and the local authorities exemplifies forward-thinking approaches to heritage conservation. By embracing innovative technologies and sustainable practices, we are not only preserving the past but also ensuring that these cherished buildings remain viable and vibrant for generations to come.

At Tailored Wood, we take immense pride in our role as custodians of heritage, and we are committed to continuing our tradition of excellence in crafting bespoke timber solutions that honour the past while embracing the future.
